1. Gather supplies
This mini greenhouse was built from stuff we already had on hand – reusable straws, clear vinyl, and glue. We suggest using either E6000 industrial glue, or Gorilla Glue will work. For the straws, any thick plastic straw should do the trick. You will also need an X-Acto knife, and a variety of binder clips to hold each piece in place while the glue dries.
